For instance, in "rough" it has an "uff" sound, while in "plough" it's more like "ow." In "through" it's more like "ew" and in "though" it's like "oh." And now you know!

"Natiform" Is a Term for Something That Looks Like a Bum


It's always helpful to have a proper word to accurately describe what you see. And thankfully, if you spot something that looks like a bum, you can use the term "natiform," which refers to anything that happens to resemble buttocks. So instead of calling a person a butthead, you can call them a natiform-head and really throw them for a loop.

Doctors Who Play Video Games More Than Three Hours a Week Make Fewer Operating Room Errors


Doctors who work in the operating room may want to start playing video games. A study published in the Archives of Surgery found that doctors who played video games for more than three hours each week made 37 percent fewer surgical errors than those who didn't. They also performed 27 percent faster and scored 42 percent better on a the test of surgical skills.

According to the researchers, this supports earlier findings that video games can improve "fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, visual attention, depth perception, and computer competency."

An NFL Referee Can Also Get a Super Bowl Ring


NFL players aren't the only ones who can take home a Super Bowl ring. Referees who have earned the honor of officiating the sport's biggest annual game are also recognized with the coveted pieces of jewelry.

According to Fox Sports, "The officials get Super Bowl rings just like the players do. They aren't as big as the players' rings, but they are still valuable pieces of jewelry. These rings mean the world to the officials and they wear them with such pride."

The Lines on the Inside of Your Wrist Have a Name

New York City Is Going to Get Bigger to Prepare for Climate Change


In March 2019, NYC's Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a plan to extend Manhattan's shoreline into the East River in order to prepare for the potentially devastating effects of climate change. By extending the island by up to 500 feet with two city blocks of parkland, they hope to create a buffer zone that will save up to 70 percent of lower Manhattan from possible future floods.
